I have a company I do free IT work for willing to "issue" me a desktop computer since I do quite a bit of work for them from the house. I'm looking at the Mac Studio w/64GB RAM and the M1 10 core CPU and 32 core GPU.
Does anyone use a Mac for PixInSight and have any feedback on whether it's as good (or better) than the Windows version?
I see that APP also has a Mac OS version.... so I'm thinking it might be a great processing platform.

I know a guy who uses Mac "puters. He was actually one of the Programmers for them. It is just another computer. Another member here learned a valuable lesson today! A high performance CPU helps in post processing. As well as mega RAM.
